About Him #002

A lot can happen in six months and for us, a lot did happen. Six months ago, I remember being myself, I was still Jasmine six months ago, but I was nowhere close to being the person that I am right now. That's not to say that I've completely changed, or that I'm not the same, I'm just a better version of myself.

Six months ago, I was content with my life and I was doing okay. But today, I'm so much more. After six months of being loved by you, I'm the happiest I've ever been, I've gained a confidence I never knew I had, I'm so much stronger than I ever thought I could be, I've grown so much as a person and a Christian with you beside me, and it only gets better each day. I love coming home to you, I love the little routines we've created, I love the stupid things we laugh at, and I love how protective and caring you are. 

The amazing thing about a relationship is the learning process. Figuring out who they are, who you are, and how you fit together. You can learn a lot about a person in six months. You discover things you love and things you don't love so much about them, you learn about their friends and meet their family, and become accustomed to all the little things that make them who they are. You begin liking things you never thought you'd like (ahem, NBA), and you catch them saying the same quirky things you say all the time ("yep, yep, yep!"). After six months of loving someone, spending all your time together, and putting all your trust in them, it becomes less of a "you" and "me" and more of an "us," and that's a great feeling. 

A lot happened in the past six months, but what stands out the most is that during these past six months, I've never felt more alive, I've never felt more like myself, and I've never been so eager for the future.
